Roseville, Minn. – Motorists will encounter nightly lane and ramp closures on eastbound Interstate 94 between Woodbury and Lakeland in the east metro beginning Sunday, Aug. 14.

Beginning at 8 p.m. through 7 a.m. each night, Sunday, Aug. 14 through Sunday, Aug. 21, eastbound I-94 will be reduced to a single lane of traffic between Woodbury Drive and the St. Croix River for pavement resurfacing along the road shoulder.

The following ramps will be closed to traffic from 6 p.m. through 5 a.m. each night, Sunday, Aug. 14 through Sunday morning, Aug. 21:

  • Woodbury Drive to eastbound I-94
  • Eastbound I-94 to Manning Avenue N.
  • Manning Avenue N. to eastbound I-94
  • Eastbound I-94 to Highway 95/St. Croix Trail N.

All construction activities and traffic impacts are weather dependent and subject to change. MnDOT urges motorists to always be attentive, drive with caution, allow more to reach your destination and slowdown in construction zones where workers are present.

I-94 between Highway 120/Century Avenue and the St. Croix River is undergoing a two-and-a-half-year pavement improvement construction project that began in July 2022. The work will improve safety, traffic flow and ride smoothness. Construction will occur in three stages with most of the work happening in 2023 and 2024.
